Novell has started shipping the Novell ZENworks 7 Suite, the new version of its systems management solution for Linux- and Windows-based systems.
Novell ZENworks automates and enforces business and IT management processes across the lifecycle of desktops, laptops, servers and handheld devices.
The software aims to control costs, ensure security and compliance and get the most from a firm’s IT investments.
ZENworks 7 can be used on a single Linux-based workstation to control both Windows-based desktops and devices, and those running the Linux operating system.
David Litwack, Novell senior vice president and general manager for identity and resource management, said, “By extending our management capabilities to the Linux platform we can provide organisations the tools they need to live in a heterogeneous IT world.”
